Neuroscience and education : at best a civil partnership : a response to Schrag.

Davis, A.J. (2013) 'Neuroscience and education : at best a civil partnership : a response to Schrag.', Journal of philosophy of education., 47 (1). pp. 31-36.

Abstract

In this response, I agree with much of what Schrag says about the principled limits of neuroscience to inform educators' decisions about approaches to learning. However, I also raise questions about the extent to which discoveries about ‘deficits’ in brain function could possibly help teachers. I dispute Schrag's view that externalism/internalism debates in the philosophy of mind are relatively arcane and lack implications for the importance or otherwise for education of discoveries about the brain.
